Progress on the Addition

It has been pretty fun to come home every day to see what progress has been made on the master bedroom addition. I really can't believe how fast they are building it. I think Jeramy has been enjoying it a bit too. He got to borrow the contractor's excavator to pull out a bunch of stumps and do some work on our driveway. Then he got to use the extra concrete to pour a cement slab for the camper. It's a construction project at home, and what could be more fun than that?

Here are some pictures of the progress:

Before. Jeramy had installed that door in the side of the house the week before from out current master bedroom to the outside. This is where we'll tie the bedroom back into the house.

Pouring the foundation last Thursday.

View from the front of the house. The addition is a bit narrower than the rest of house. In the front we didn't want it too close to the garage and we aren't continuing the brick work.

View from the side of the house. The french doors have blinds built into them! Eventually when we can afford it we'll build a deck and hot tub that connects to the deck off the back of the house.

View from the back of the house. The house looks a lot bigger from this angle.

A view from the inside. It is 20 x 24 but some of that will be used for additional closet space because my clotheshorse husband has taken over nearly all of our current walk in closet.

Another view of the inside.

Wow, I am SO impressed! Jeramy has been doing an awesome job, and FAST! Does he want to come to our house next to wall off half of our loft to make a fourth bedroom? Obviously a gift card to a clothing store is the perfect reward for him. (And he says he doesn't go to the fancy mall... RIGHT!) ;)

Looks very cool. What's the estimated finish date? I'm jealous that you'll be getting so much closet space... it's the one thing missing from my house......

That's pretty amazing stuff...Jeramy is talented! I bet you're anxious for the finished product...good luck!!!

Just to be clear a contractor is doing the basic structure. So while Jeramy has been hanging out and loaning them some tools he hasn't been doing that work. He'll be doing all the finish work inside though.

This is not to say that Jeramy isn't talented though...because he most certainly is!

I like all the windows, I love natural light. I also love the french doors and the idea of the deck and hot tub. (((spoiled! =D)))
I'm very impressed with what a busy body he is and how much he's got done. We still havent picked a paint color for the baby room and it's been over 2 weeks since we found out what we're having.

Wow! They have been moving along fast. Boys . . . they love their construction and DEstruction. I know mine does!
